I am planning to control a water tank motor switch through some mechanical means( Since I am in a rented house, I am not allowed to change the electrical wiring for this. And the switch is in the ground floor, while I stay in the second floor. I am planning to control the switch from my house).
The switch is similar to this
I am looking for a mechanism in which there will be an external mechanical structure which will hit the switch to turn it on and off. It should retract after hitting the switch to allow manual control as well.
I know the solution has to be something similar to relays but I am not sure on the details.
I would be thankful for any suggestions and ideas.
